Update - Joy

Since they are having trouble getting an accurate EEG, they started Cale on seizure meds as a preventive measure. The stimulation meds have also been decreased in case this is the cause of Cale's trembling. He will still be wearing his legs splints, but not the arm splints. The doctors are hoping that by early next week Cale will be completely weaned from the trach tube, if they are able to remove the trach tube by early in the week, Cale will be moved to rehab. Cale is fighting stronger than ever & I mean that literally. He tries to get his hands up to pull on the trach tube & when we try to stop him, he fights us to let go of his hands. In a very short time, he will be starting on the long road to full recovery. I wish I could stay here just to see what God has in store for Cale & Kathleen.

Yesterday I was talking to the social worker here at the hospital & she said that at the end of this journey, Kathleen will have a more powerful testimony than she has had from all of the mission trips she has been on. There are so many individuals here that have talked to me about how strong Kathleen's faith is & how she not only talks about her faith, but she is also walking in her faith.

  4. I keep thinking: You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Gen 50:20 Praise the LORD for his ultimate good purpose. You are all such an inspiration. Thanks for keeping it up.
